Using Ini Files

2 posts in this topic

Hiya all! Im gonna do my best to explain what I want to do, but I wont get chance to check this again until 3:00PM GMT. Okie dokie, here goes:

In a AutoIt script .exe file I want to put the command, for example:

Sleep(2000)
Send($input1)
Send("{ENTER}")
Sleep(50)
Send($input2)
Exit

Okies, now then, I want $input1 and $input2 to be obtained from a .ini file and I need to know how to obtain these from the ini file(it gets a bit tidious typing the same data into an InputBox everytime). If I aint explained that proper this is what I want:

.INI FILE:

[inputs]
$input1=example1
$input2=example2

.EXE COMMANDS:

Sleep(2000)
Send($input1)         ;Obtained from .ini file
Send("{ENTER}")
Sleep(50)
Send($input2)         ;Obtained from .ini file
Exit

By the way, why do u have to put the [ ] in the ini file thing

Thanks for your help,

Sam

It is just a standard InI format thing.

If you use the iniwrite functions from the help file, it will create your INI file for you. You can then use the iniread function to read it, and it might be a bit easier to know all the parameters.

;my first ini
IniWrite("C:\Temp\myfile.ini", "section2", "key", "this is a new value")
$var = IniRead("C:\Temp\myfile.ini", "section2", "key", "NotFound")
MsgBox(4096, "Result", $var)
